You haven't said how old this unit is. Older units sometimes face carbon build up in the engine and muffler. Maybe pull the muffler off and see if the exhaust port of the engine has buildup of carbon and the spark arresting screen in between them is clogged? If it is, clean it and inspect the muffler for clogging too. The muffler can be soaked in a solvent of your choice to loosen and break up carbon accumulation. Other than that, the carburetor may just need an adjustment. Many carbs dont't always function well in the climate they are used in as the initital set up of the carb is a "standard" setting that is mandated at the factory. See if you can adjust it. Here is a tutorial for a typical 2-stoke carburetor, assuming that is what this machine has.

My weed eater (toro), won't let me pull the cord at all. This weed eater doesn't take oil I don't think.


All internal combustion engines use oil of some description. I take it this is a 2 cycle engine and you have not added oil to the gas. If this is the case the engine is locked up, and must be replaced. Sorry.

My toro gas trimmer does not have power, when squeez for more gas it will slow down even moreand stall on me. will restart but not enough power to wack weed.


Make sure the air filter is clean and that the sparkplug is gapped correctly and not dirty. Try putting it on choke slightly and see if you can increase the speed with the trigger. If you can't the muffler is probably dirty. You have to take the spark arrester off the muffler and clean it with a wire brush.

My toro 51970a trimmer has been leaking gas and flooding for the past few weeks, but I could start it. Today, it is gushing gas from the back when I pull the starter string. How do i fix this?


The carburetor needs to be removed and inspected. The malfunctions possibly indicate the need for a repair kit. I've been unable to locate your exact model, but if it has the 2-Stroke engine (gas/oil mix), then you will at the very least..need a gasket and diaghragm kit installed per inspection. There is the possibility that the carburetor needs a complete rebuild and would require the complete rebuild kit. Remove the gas lines (after draining gas). Remove the carb and inspect the screws and tightness of the screws in the 2 end covers. Are the screws tight? If not tighten them up and reinstall, trying to restart the machine. Post back if needed.

Weed eater bogs down when i try to give it full throttle, won,t get up enough speed and torque to trim grass. i tried new gas, spark plug, and still doesn,t help.


have to adjust the high on the carb. should have, 3 screws, 2 that are together is your h for high, and L for low. the one by itself is for idle. when mackine is running, squeeze throttle and adjust the high til it clears up, if it stalls real fast, back counter clockwise while off, and try to restart it, if worse, go the other way. i do mine by 1/4 turns. keep count of turns in case your going the wrong way! hope this helps!

String breaking


Check to ensure that the string is the correct size as specified in the owners manual. If ok check age of the string. If old it has a tendancy to be brittle. If new and supple try letting the trimmer get up to full speed and let the tip of the string do the cutting. Avoid taking on too much at once with this trimmer as the electric and battery trimmers are not as powerful as their gas counterparts. I hope this helps.
